RUFFLED FEATHER CLUTCH | I FOUND IT!!! | … and I already bought one in every color.

Ok, so remember that little teaser from yesterday? Here we go…


I adore The Cherry Blossom Girl, aka Alix; she’s a breath of fresh, Parisian air, and I visit her blog regularly. I’m a big fan of her style, and I always uncover little gems during my virtual strolls through her blog. It’s always a treat to visit. But when she began posting pics relating to her wedding

{Her dress was custom-made by Maria Lucia Hohan}

{This heart cut-out frock is my next mission, by the way:}


… that was IT. I fell deeply, irrevocably in love with her approach to fashion and styling… and perhaps most of all, a certain little clutch I noticed, tucked under the arm of one of her gorgeous bridesmaids.

I couldn’t begin to sing enough praises for this clutch. First of all, it’s the perfect accessory for any night out, no question. But listen to this:

How perfect…

… HOW…

… Would a bunch of these clutches be as gifts for bridesmaids? Or, better yet, as replacements for their bouquets? Eh? Eh?

I think I’d LOVE to see my girls walking down the aisle with these in their hands. How effing haute is that?!!

* * *

Thing is, there was no link to this hand-held beauty… and I imagined it could only be by some famous designer, for some insane price, made especially for her, like her dress. … But still, I searched.

I’ll have you know that one thing I’m really good at is hunting and gathering fashion. (I didn’t go to college for nothing.) Now, you wouldn’t know it if you saw what I wear sometimes when I blog, but it’s true. And when I want to find something, I get tunnel vision – we call it hyper-focused in my family – and I don’t stop ’til I get enough. Michael Jackson-style.

And guess what? I got enough. Three, in fact.

One in black feathers:

Another in nude feathers (as featured in the picture at the tippy top):

And yet another, this time in grey feathers:

Yes, I really bought it up in three colors. At approx. $42 a pop, HOW COULD I RESIST? I actually can’t decide which one I need the most, but according to the way it looks in that GORGEOUS pic above by Marianne Taylor from The Cherry Blossom Girl getting ready session, I’m completely smitten with nude.

And now, to celebrate the find, Michael Jackson-style:

What do you think? Do you have a favorite? At $42, would you consider this a perfect gift for bridesmaids? Lemme know!

xoxo! – Alison

Label(s): Beige/brown, Black, Color, Grey, {Fashion}

Love all of this...

    I love you for having done the research for me, since I currently have a huge paper due and don’t have the time! (I’m another dedicated tracker-downer ;) )!

    I think it’s important to note that nude feather clutch seems to be sold out, but there is this possible alternative

    What i don’t realize is in reality how you are now not actually much more well-appreciated than you might be now.
    You are very intelligent. You already know thus considerably on the subject
    of this matter, produced me for my part consider it from numerous various angles.
    Its like men and women don’t seem to be interested until it’s something to
    accomplish with Girl gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent.
    At all timss deal with it up!
